In light of the recent COVID 19 pandemic, we have decided to take our summer camps online. Students grades 6 – 12 will get the opportunity to explore various avenues of storytelling and media production while staying safe at home. We will utilize video conferencing and other accessible tools like cell phone cameras and free computer software to create original content.

Enrollment is prioritized for students in the PA, NJ and DE area. We offer payment plans, full and partial scholarships. For more information, please contact Jenine Pilla at jpilla@whyy.org

Stop Motion and Animation Virtual Summer Program
Grades 6 – 12
Animating on a budget! In this camp, students will be learning stop-motion animation using their smartphones (or tablets) and a few simple everyday objects. While the materials are cheap, the content is rich as we’ll dive into animation concepts such as the “Principles of Animation,” stop-motion software, story-boarding, and creative writing. Participants will have the opportunity to exercise their creative side by creating their very own stop-motion movie.
